Boston Red Sox Photography: Thursday, August 23, 2012 vs. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Here are a few photos from what I can honestly say felt like the longest game I’ve ever worked. It was only 10 innings, but somehow it felt longer than the 17 inning game from earlier this year or any rain delay filled game that I can remember. It was a really, really slow 10 innings.

That’s life, though! This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Patience is a virtue. If you sit and wait long enough, you’ll get a nice photo or two.

Not much to say about this game, except that it’s always nice when your team comes through with a really solid, strong, convincing win. The pictures are always better, and so are your spirits while shooting. Last night was full of hits, home runs, and high fives – seen above.

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: During games like these with lots of runs and action, it’s good to voice tag your key photos to save you time when captioning later on. It’s something I’ve done plenty of times, but did for the first time in awhile last night.
